Say goodbye to Bastian Schweinsteiger is increasingly likely. Rummenigge explained that the Vice Captain of the interest of Manchester felt “flattered”. It might have ended an era.
Munich – plays Bastian Schweinsteiger at the FC Bavariafor 17 years. That’s more than half of his life. He has won eight Championships, seven times the DFB-Cup, the triple. But perhaps the 30 years never runs on for his heart Club. Indicate the recent statements made by Karl-Heinz Rummenigge .
Not only that Rummenigge at the edge of the presentation of the new “Platinum Partner” Gigaset spoke for the first time ever publicly about a possible transfer of world champion and renounced any commitment to Schweinsteiger. He also revealed how intense the Bavarian leader who is currently still on vacation, apparently deals with a move to United and ex-coach Louis van Gaal. It is clear for weeks that the Dutch want him necessarily. At Bayern, van Gaal had Schweinsteiger once shaped by the external player to one of the world’s best midfield strategists. Now both could find together.
“Piecing together and have a conversation lead”
You wanted are now in the coming days with Schweinsteiger “put together and lead a conversation,” Rummenigge said. Apparently it is a hurry, both sides want clarity quickly. The team presentation of Bavaria is already on Saturday. Hard to imagine that Schweinsteiger, whose contracting runs until 2016, it takes part and then still moves. United United States breaks on Monday at the training camp in which, however, already.
That Schweinsteiger at Bayern is no longer indispensable, was already evident in the past few months. Coach PEP Guardiola and Sports Director Matthias Sammer did not last as Rummenigge clear statements to a vice captain’s whereabouts. Never was Schweinsteiger in the face of tremendous competition for Thiago, Philipp Lahm, Xabi Alonso or David Alaba. In the coming season, his perspective because of the return of long-injured Javi Martínez and Joshua Rwand’s commitment would deteriorate further. So, there are reasons for Schweinsteiger, to leave the Club. Especially since he wants to lead the German national team to the European Championship title in the coming year as captain. Game practice is essential for this. At United he would get that sure.
Commitment? Error display
Schweinsteiger itself had expressed to his future end of may during a commercial shoot. At the time he said: “Still no team in Germany has succeeded to become four times consecutive champions.” That was “Motivation” to stay for him. A few days later, after the match against the United States, he however avoided a commitment to Bayern and referred to the talk with Rummenigge that now stands.
The Bayern boss ruled out, however, that Schweinsteiger could switch to United in Exchange with Angel Di Maria. “I can totally deny that”, said Rummenigge. “Such a deal was never part of the considerations in Munich nor in Manchester.” According to information of the French newspaper “Le Parisien”, the Argentines should be anyway shortly before moving to Paris St Germain . Di Maria have agreed therefore already with the French capital Club about a change. Manchester United should require around 60 million euro transfer fee for the 27-year old winger.
What is certain is that the Bayern squad plans “are ongoing”, as Rummenigge pointed out: “If you look at the market little has taken place in England or Spain so far. It will arise one or other changes.” On a possible contract extension Guardiolas, he said: “I’m not as pessimistic. I think we have good cards that PEP is coach of Bayern Munich after 30 June 2016 and remains.” This may no longer applies to Schweinsteiger.
